No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and feeling stuck or confused about next steps in life. No matter the season of life you are in, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and the combined power of your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.

Many of us who look like we’re doing fine on the outside secretly struggle with a deep, internal fear that we are not “enough.” Many of us also know the pain of feeling marginalized in various ways. Perhaps we are exhausted managing these difficult thoughts and feelings each day. We are further worn down when others don’t recognize the harm that structural oppression causes us. While we are looking for better ways to navigate the world, we also just long to be understood and supported for the nuanced individuals we are. Can you relate? If so, a trusting relationship with a social justice-minded therapist could be meaningful to you.
